UNH FACULTY SENATE
MOTION # XV-M4

on establishing a standing committee on information technology

 

1.  Motion presenter:   Ben Cariens

2.  Date of Faculty Senate discussion:  11/15/2010 and 11/29/2010

3.   Rationale:  The Agenda Committee has voted to propose a motion to the Faculty Senate that a new senate standing committee on information technology be established by the beginning of the next fall semester.  The senate’s Library Committee has been dealing with information technology matters; but now there should be a senate committee on information technology, since this is a fast-growing area and there is a university chief information officer who could be the new committee’s contact person in the administration.  The motion requires a two-thirds vote because it would change the senate constitution and bylaws.

4.   Motion:  We move to establish a standing committee of the Faculty Senate dedicated to information technology matters.  The committee’s corresponding administrator will be UNH’s chief information officer; and the membership will be chosen in the same way as the other senate standing committees.

5.  Senate action:  passed with thirty-one ayes, no nays, and one abstention.

6.  Senate chair’s signature:  Edward Hinson
